Besides Truckee, Oxnard is my one of my favorite places to escape from the busy environment that is my home. Despite the fact that I'm doing what I love everyday, it can be tiresome, especially the commute from home to school and school to home, and not to mention the long hours I spend on the computer, staring intently at each vertex and edge of my computer model to make everything perfect. Oxnard, as my neighbor claimed proudly one day, never rains; every time I've been there, it has never rained. So instead of raining, the sun shines brightly while emitting waves of heat that make me want to jump into the ocean and just float there. I didn't get to swim, but I spent a lot of time with my family going on a boat around the harbor while looking at the gorgeous unique houses by the water and cooking delicious seafood that we got fresh in the early morning.
